The staff are friendly and the location is perfect if it's your first or 100th time paddle boarding! Jake was very knowledgeable and was great at catering the lesson to myself, my 13 year old and my 10 year old. Can't wait to go back!

Awesome time with the six of us (adults and youth). It was our first time ever paddle boarding, and we all want to go again! Shelby was a fabulous instructor! We even had a seal come visit us while out in the water! Can't wait to go again!! Many thanks to Neil and Shelby!!

Today I decided it was time to learn to paddle board. I found Tofino Paddle Surf through word-of-mouth recommendations. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. My instructor Neil did a great job of showing me the basics and keeping an eye on me. He was great in keeping me calm and making me laugh when I fell off,... More

Super knowledgeable staff, great rental gear, awesome instructors, and they all actually SUP. I don't think other SUP rentals in Tofino can say that. The only place I'd go for anything SUP related in Tofino

Tofino Paddle Surf is truly an amazing company to deal with, while in Tofino if you want to SUP. Knowledgeable, relaxed, very reasonably priced, it can't be beat. Marcel took myself and two teenagers on an inlet tour. His thorough technical instruction, information, advice and enthusiasm was infectious and instilled confidence in us, despite our lack of experience paddling on... More
